I was wondering if anyone of you could help me or give me some advice with the following situation:
I am an Austrian citizen currently living with my American girlfriend in the US. In early March I am going to move to Berlin for work, while she stays back in the US for a couple of months. In Summer however, I'd like her to join me in Berlin for several months, and maybe even permanently (thought that's not decided yet).
My main concern is, will she somehow be able to work as well when she eventually follows me to Berlin?
We were talking about getting married for a while now. And after reading this page (Link 1) and this page (Link 2) it seems that getting married would be a legitimate option to enable her to look for work in Germany (remember, I am Austrian and hence EU laws would apply). Please correct me if I have misinterpreted things.
Lastly, does it matter where we would get married? Because we might actually do it while I am still here in the US, as long as Germany/EU recognizes our marriage.
Thank you very much for all your help and guidance!
